This paper represents a new lead acid battery charging system. This system has the possibility in different applications (communications systems, electric vehicles, and low-Earth-orbit spacecraft) in order to minimize charging time using bidirectional dc-dc convert. Evolution of main parameters (battery voltage, current, switching stress and temperature) was recorded. Then, data obtained were processed and analyzed to determine the effects of fast-charging on Lead acid batteries. The simulation results are used to show main characteristics of charging process as a function of charging rate used. In this way, simulation results were taken to the application range of fast-charging in medium/high capacity Lead acid batteries can be reached. The design is verified by MATLAB simulation.
